Why a Tesla Roadster?
I believe that it’s ridiculous to still be relying on machinery that pollutes to get us around. We have the technology so why aren’t we using it? Car makers need to step up! Electric motors have been tried and tested for years in other applications and have been proven to be extremely durable with minimal maintenance—not to mention the savings in fuel cost. It’s a no-brainer. This benefits both the environment and the consumer.
The Tesla Roadster is truly the green car of my dreams! An electric car that can be pitted against some of Porsche’s best. This is why I want the Tesla Roadster. I’m really hoping that my quest brings some much deserved attention to electric vehicles!
Why a trade-up?
For the past few years, I have been dreaming of owning the Tesla Roadster but I knew I would never be able to afford it. I would have to save up my full salary for a few years to purchase this car. My wife and I also started a family with the birth of our beautiful son William and daughter Emma and have a home with bills to pay; so obviously, our financial priorities are elsewhere.
So I had to get creative. I had to find a way! I was inspired by the guy who traded a red paper clip for a house—Kyle MacDonald—and decided to attempt to reach my goal like he did, by swapping item to item until I reach my dream car.
